I totally understand. I work in the news business and am normally pretty hardened to this kind of stuff, but since this regime has been in power, it's been too much to take.

I started the water works myself watching the "When the Levees Broke" documentary Spike Lee did for HBO. In part b/c I went to school in New Orleans and have a real fondness for that place, but mostly b/c of the pure human misery that was playing out against the backdrop of callousness and cluelessness that passes for "leadership" these days. I'm not saying Democrats have all the answers, or that someone else could have prevented the worst of Katrina, but the response to it was clearly unacceptable in what is supposed to be an era of "compassionate" conservatism.
